The Smith I/O revolutionised the ski/snowboard goggle market several years ago and has since been the benchmark in the industry and the standard by which all others are measured. The large spherical and frameless lens provides superb peripheral vision and the premium lenses provide exceptional clarity.
The new Responsive Fit design features a lattice structure with reduced material allowing the frame to adapt to all face shapes creating a better fit and performance. Comfort is guaranteed with 3 layer DriWix face foam that wicks away moisture and keeps out the elements.
The I/O utilizes a spherical carbonic-x lens with TLT optics and a 5X anti-fog coating. This provides unmatched levels of clarity and vision quality and combines to provide unmatched vision regardless of the conditions and create a goggle that will never fog. Smith's patented Porex filter also guarantees performance at any elevation allowing the goggle to adapt to the changes in air pressure experienced when traveling up and down the mountain.
These excellent lenses can be changed swiftly with Smith's quick release system allowing you to switch lenses depending on the elements. This system is so easy it can even be operated with gloves on! The I/O is also fully helmet compatible and features articulating outriggers so you can wear them under or over a helmet.
With a bonus lens included and compatible with Smith's premium Chromapop lens series you can tackle any condition with ease and guarantee an awesome on mountain experience with the Smith I/O.
5X Anti Fog - A chemical lens treatment that is 5 times more effective than other brands and because it's a chemical treatment, it won't rub off!
Quick Release Lens System - Makes lens changing a breeze even when out on the mountain
Urethane Frame - Flexible yet durable in all temperatures and molds to your face for superior comfort
Responsive Fit Frame Design - Reduced material and a lattice construction allows the frame to adapt to any face shape
Drywix Face Foam - Triple layer face foam seals out the elements whilst wicking sweat and keeping you dry
Porex Filter - Smith's patented Porex™ Filter to allow the lens to breath and adapt to different air pressures to further reduce the risk of fogging
TLT Lens Technology - Tapered Lens Technology makes the lens thicker in the middle of your line of sight and thinner towards the peripherals. This reduces distortion and gives crystal clear vision at all angles
Carbonic X Lens - Amazingly clear and precise lens technology that acts to correct refracted incoming light to prevent eye fatigue
Hydrophobic Lens Coating - Premium water-repellent lens coating helps water bead off and prevent streaky water marks on the lens
Chromapop lens - Compatible with Smith's high spec Chromapop lenses that filter out two separate light wavelengths and provide exceptional clarity and definition across a wider range of conditions
Quality goggles, sometimes you have to pay a little more! Only used for 6 days but had flat light, sunny days, snow and mist so got a fairly good test. Changed the lens a couple of times but to be honest the standard lens would suffice 90% of the time. No fogging/misting issues even with face mask on, wore them with the Smith Vantage Helmet sat perfectly together and look amazing. When comparing with other goggles within our group (Scott and Bolle) and not cheap versions! not in the same league. Tried the i o/x version which is a little larger with a squarer look but for my face was a little too big. Only drawback is they don't come with a case you can order one but when I was looking they were only available in America, I understand they used to come with a case but to reduce the cost stopped!
The ultimate fit with the Maze helmet
I bought these as I wasn't particularly comfortable with the fit of my Oakley Crowbars with my Smith Maze helmet. The fit between the Maze and the I/O is perfect - totally comfortable, no pressure/pinching on bridge of nose and no gaps. I've used the goggles for a week of varied Winter conditions in the Alps, as well as 3 days Summer Glacier riding. No fogging or misting at all. The quick change lens feature is amazing - well less than a minute to change lenses. I purchased the bundle with Blackout lens and Red Sensor Mirror lens. The Blackout lens is fantastic for medium to bright conditions - it's not as dark to look through as you may think and I also used it in lower light conditions. The Red Sensor Mirror lens on the otherhand, did not work well for me. It's for low light conditions but I found it did not agree at all with my eyes, and left me with very weird and distracting sparkles all over my vision. I'm sure it's to do with my particular vision in combination with this lens - not sure it would affect anyone else. I will have to get a different low light lens for my next trip. Even with the low light lens not agreieng wit hme, I still give these goggles a 5!
Ordered the Smith I/O goggles. They came on time and as describe. will buy again from this vendor.
Who needs Oakleys when you can have Smiths?
Comfortable. Helmet compatible, even with my niche Hardnutz helmet. Used them in the French Alps in a variety of conditions. Even managed to see some half decent distance in front when I got caught up in a serious white-out at the top of the glacier (although don't try this, I was already halfway down, its dangerous). You got two lenses also. Red sensor perfect for seeing gradient and works in most conditions. Green Sol-X was best for bright sun. Great goggles. Very easy to change lenses, can do it in less than 30 seconds.
Really happy with these. 2 pairs of lenses came with, covering all the conditions I encountered on the mountain this year. Bag is good enough for carrying out goggles & lenses. Good fit around my nose and helmet and didn't fog up once. (and I overheat a fair bit).
Like the goggles very much. They look great and extra lense is a good bonus perfect for snowy days.
Great product. Unfortunately had to return due to manufacturer error.
